Music in the Hall, Episode I From his office in Oxford’s oldest building on the square, Daniel Morrow, of Oxford Music Snob fame, thought the long, narrow hall with hardwood floors and high ceilings was screaming for something more than just office space. He envisioned an intimate music hall to be utilized on special occasions. On Thursday night, the ordinary hall with immense potential was transformed into an inaugural event billed as “Music In The Hall (Episode I).” About 50 chairs were lined up in the hall for an unplugged, acoustic...

Oxford Art Worth Seeing

Posted by on Nov 1, 2008 in Oxford | 2 comments

Sure, sure, I’ve seen my fair share of Oxford artwork floating around town, and on the web. It’s rare, though, when I stumble across pieces I like. It doesn’t have to be fancy, or overdone. Simply capturing a city scene at the right moment can speak volumes. And that’s exactly what Ann Caudle, an artist from Huntsville Alabama, has done with some of her recent paintings. She recently dropped by Oxford, and captured some great scenes around the city. Being strong supporters of independent artists, we thought we’d...

The Great Pumpkin

“I’ll find the perfect pumpkin patch that is really sincere and I’ll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears. He’ll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he’ll fly through the air with his bag of toys. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I’ll be waiting for him! I’ll be there! I’ll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch and I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see, Charlie Brown.” -Linus Oxford’s Halloween festivities begin as early as September each year. St....

It’s a hobby project of ours : ) Some interesting info about this house: Originally built in 1851 as a honeymoon cottage for Jennifer Nabors Sandifer. Appropriately, Oxonians through the years began to refer to the house as “The Honeymoon Cottage”. The magnolia trees found on the property were planted after the home’s construction, and are known to be the oldest and largest in town. enjoy! View Larger...

Thank You, Neko Case

Posted by on Oct 9, 2008 in Oxford | 1 comment

Neko Case The Lyric 9/25/2008 Oxford, MS As debate anticipation and chaos fell more heavily upon the Square, and our Republican and Democratic nominees landed in Oxford, so did Neko Case’s needle. And as that reference is nothing without its lyric, so The Lyric was nothing on Thursday night without its star. And a Star Witness was I. The Lyric, Oxford’s newest music venue, opened its doors in July and has since occupied its stage with the nationally-toured voices of Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, Jenny Lewis, and The Drive-By...
